Pink power ranger pajamas and the fashion capital of the world.


When I write a blog, I cant start with a title. My blogs are from my heart, when I rant? I don’t know where I’m going to go with it until I’m done. I don’t know how people do that.

Anyways, to start, I have to say I wore a cute casual outfit today. It was dark slim boot jeans, riding style boots, a white camisole, and a coral and black polka dotted cardigan.

This is the cardigan from papaya, except mine is not blueeee.

Guess where the boots are from? I love this game.

K-mart.

ūüôā tehehe. They’re currently on sale for $12 and change, so if you feel the urge to get them in different colors, I understand.

Oh, this is Owen. The only man I need in my life, aka my little brother. He gives fabulous kisses, and has good taste in polos. He learns from the best!

Last night Owen and I were doing homework on my bed.. taking videos on the webcam and eating m&ms I mean, and I was thinking about how next year I won’t have a study buddy.. not one that makes buzzer noises when I say the wrong vocab answers and shares a love for ribbon covered headbands. Yeah, Owens is a smidge¬†effeminate¬†for the average male 2 year old, but Andrew is 14 and perfectly straight, and his favorite pajamas were the pink poweranger ones.

I’m sure he’ll appreciate that being on here.. Oops.

Whatever, speaking of pink.. I changed the format of the blog to pink and pretty! ¬†I did it in honor of my last post, pink money, but I talk about pink enough in all of my posts that I think I’ll just keep it there anyways.

I never ended up applying for scholarships last night. Homework takes over my life… the fact that I’m posting right now is completely against my maintaining a 4.0, but my sanity relies on venting and talking fashion with all of you, so it’ll get done later. ¬†After all, the Kmart¬†clientele doesn’t exactly give me my dose of fashion each day and I work at 5.

I wanted to go to a Masquerade ball tomorrow night, to meet my one true love. It’s totally part of my life plan -sarcasm- but that fell through, I have to work and apparently you don’t wear dresses. Just tacky masks. ¬†I’m working this week more than usual, and I hope it pays off.. because one of my friends asked me to go with her to the city for a day over my high school spring break and I need to shop. That would require missing a day of classes in college, which I haven’t done all semester.. but I need a break.

I wish my professor would make an exception for such incidents involving the fashion capital of the world.

The good news is, my mom might. It’s up to me in the end, if I want to go, she said. I am the one that has to make up the work, and I am the one drilling myself for a perfect 4.0 this semester, on top of last.. so I can choose if I’m going.

I just want to live and breath fashion lately. I have to pinch myself to stay awake during Government and I’m really good in history. I just have to make it until June. Why couldn’t¬†college¬†end in June and high school end in May?

I’m sick of the people from both places, but at least I could focus on what I consider more important if highschool were out of the way.

I suppose that’s what next year is for.. Oh well. I never played by the rules anyways.

Love,

Allison

Don’t play by the rules, successful people think for themselves.

Power shopping.


Last night, my Aunts and I went to the Tanger outlets. In New York, I am only familiar with waterloo, and in Massachusetts, I like Lee, but these outlets were decent too. We got to the outlets at 7:30 last night, it closes at 9. TALK ABOUT POWER SHOP.

Most times when I am in a store like Ralph Lauren Polo, I will browse even if I don’t see something I like right off the bat. That “browsing” type of shopping was not the type that was appropriate for yesterday. But anyways, once I transitioned into power shopping mode, I was successful no doubt. I spent $150.00 in that narrow time period, but I am not ashamed at all.

Today it is going to be 80 degrees outside! So I absolutely, HAD to buy some shorts. My constant issue at the struggling age of 17 while being blessed with a womenly figure, is that if Ibuy juniors (low rise,¬†small everything) shorts, they¬†are extremely short and unflattering to my well endowed thighs. The other extreme is when you go into the¬†women’s department and high rise is up¬†to your chest but the length is appealing. It is so hard for me to find a happy medium that you would THINK, I would have no chance yesterday, but I fight every shopping battle I can find and win. So that, obviously, didn’t stop me.

The shorts were found at J Crew <3. True preppy heaven. I am THRILLED that I found 3 pairs, and the best part is that I spent only 85 dollars on them! Second runner up to the best part, is that I am a size smaller than anticipated. The color selection was wonderful, but it was 9:00 on the dot, the time the outlets close and I am supposed to be leaving when I was still in the fitting rooms. I decided on impulse (fabulous impulse though) to grab 2 pairs of the 5 inch inseam, the most flattering shorts ever created, in coral and sky blue. And the 9 iunch inseam, or bermudas, in navy.

Oh, but there’s more :).

J Crew was the last¬†stop on my¬†power shopping trip. First stop was Ralph Lauren, where it¬†breaks my heart to say, but I walked out empty handed! Next I went in Papaya. It stunned me to see Papaya had an outlet, but I wasn’t going to argue. Although the clothing is cheaply made, and I tried on 15 items and only walked out¬†with 2, those 2 items totaling 30 dollars¬†do not look like their price tags. I bought a coral and navy polka dotted cardigan and a¬†navy lace tank with a peplum collar. So preppy, so cute.

My last successful store was Rue 21. No, Rue 21 and Papaya do not compare to J Crew, but you are talking to a girl on a $7.25 and hour budget.. even on vacation. At Rue I felt no motivation to try on clothing, could have been due to the AMAZING delecacies I have been eating on this trip, but none-the-less no motivation. Instead I raded the accessories wall. I bought:

A gray and white polka dotted scarf

A bottle of RUE perfume (light pink in a silver glitter covered box, could not resist)

A lace headband with rhinestones in the middle of a flower

3 pairs of sunglasses: Black with swirls on the sides, GIANT purple glasses, and GIANT turquoise glasses.

2 necklaces: One high necked choker of turqouise and green tear drop shaped crystals. The other a long necklace with pink gems and cubic zerconias on the end.

A black belt with a big black and white polka dotted flower on it.

Anyways, I was incredibly successful, for $150 dollars I would say. I am thrilled to inform you I resisted buying a tote in Coach since I bought those shorts.. but never fear I will probably splurge soon.¬† I got my 200 dollars in tax return money directly deposited to my account this morning :). So I¬†still have loads of cash to spend in Atlanta or I could save towards a Vespa, because I’m obviously going to ride a pink one in Savannah if I go to SCAD.

It’s been fabulous describing and gushing about my purchases with you. I would show pictures, but I’m on a laptop that is not of my own possession, and as previously noted, don’t want to download images and contaminate it. I hope you enjoyed my entry, check back soon for many chic bargains that are guarenteed to come.

I have to get ready for the day, I’m accompanying my Aunt to Emory college where she is a professor, and I am lost as to what I should wear…

Xoxo,

Allison
